Honda issued its second recall in the last two years last Tuesday, and this issue is not as different as its predecessor. 2018-2020 Odysseys, 2019-2020 Passports, and 2019-2021 Pilots were recalled for software issues that can cause the display to malfunction and not show information like speed, gear selection and oil pressure, which can potentially be dangerous if not taken care of.
Another problem that issued the recall dealt with software programming itself. Drivers of the defected vehicles were reporting rearview camera failure, either a delay in the image appearing or it not showing up at all. Not only were there software issues, but Honda also reports that water can get into the camera mounting holes and disrupt the image that is displayed.
In total, Honda has recalled over 1.6 million of its vehicles which can shake consumer confidence in the brand, especially since this is their second recall in the last few years with a similar problem.
